Bahhumbug Challenge 3 cracker.

Hi folks the challenge this week at Bahhumbug was to put a cracker  somewhere on your card. I had to do some trawling for this one. I knew I had seen a backing paper somewhere on a cd with crackers. Wow! It took me ages to find it. I printed a pale blue background one. But my photo doesn't do it justice. I decided to draw a cracker shape, I cut it out and glittered the ends, threaded my ribbons through and made bows.  Added a red oval shape, then I cut a circle and embossed it with my cuttlebug. The image was recycled from an old Christmas card. Added bling onto the red layer.
Thanks folks for visiting, hope you have a good week and happy crafting. Hugs x ChrisB


  1. Hi Chris - love yor cracker shaped card and how lovely to see a recycled image too. It fits perfectly with the theme. Your backing paper looks like it may be one of the Jane Nesterenko ones but I'm not sure. I know one of our participants found one on a Messy Rabbit CD that I had forgotten about.
    Thanks joining us again - think you'll find next week's challenge less stressful.
